Optometry advisement is for students that are interested in becoming a Doctor of Optometry (OD). Optometrists are the primary health care professionals for the eyes. We help students determine if optometry is right for them. Students will learn about optometry schools and the preparation that is required.

We assist students in planning necessary classes and preparing for the Optometry Admissions Test (OAT). Additionally, we counsel students about specifics such as shadowing an optometrist, assisting in scientific research, performing community service, obtaining letters of recommendation, and being involved in any other extracurricular activities that will improve students’ chances of gaining admission to optometry school.

We are available to all students regardless of major. We strongly advise students to come in and meet with our advisors to help guide you through your undergraduate experience. Please click below to see the available handouts.
